Month 1’s last workout is the same as the first regular workout of the month, the Plyometric Cardio Circuit. This time, when Shaun T said “One more set of this craziness, ya’ll. Let’s push” it would be the last set for this round of Insanity. Unfortunately, while I had hoped this would be a day to push and see how far I improved, I think I did worse than the first day. I had a headache and didn’t feel well before I started and every move made it worse.
I felt so lethargic throughout the workout, as if I were being held back by a tether. The push ups I had been doing normally I was down on my knees for and couldn’t even make myself do the floor sprints. I just stayed down and did modified push ups. I’m normally okay with the ski abs and in and out abs, but I was so slow I only got in about a half-dozen each set. This might be the one day where I really should have given it a rest and skipped but I’m glad I didn’t. I had to adjust to do less than I usually would, but at least I did it. Unlike last year, I completed Month 1 without skipping a single workout.
